once again live from washington, moderator gwen ifill. gwen: good evening. just when it seemed the economy was on a reliable upturn and jobs were returning for good comes unsettling news today. instead of the 200,000 new jobs economists predicted for the month of march only 88,000 were add. and even though the unemployment rate dropped to 7.6% that is because some people have given up look for work. so why are things so unstable in the economy? david? >> it was an unambiguous jobs report at least until the government revises it. new jobs were created at half the pace. and the unemployment rate fell only because half a million people left the labor force. and the reason it was so disturbing was that it comes at a time when the other economic data was looking pretty good. auto sales is going up, housing. the stock market had a bad week this week but it's grown 10% this year. i guess the question is -- what happened? what went wrong? one is there is the revision question. in 10 of the last 14 months the government has revised up its initial estimate. gwen: so it looks better than
freedom struggle for the rest of the talk. and none will be more celebrated than the march on washington that happened on august 28, 1963. i think we can imagine that the focus will be, you know, this is probably what we're going to see a lot of, right? dr. king, the celebrity of dr. king and the "i have a dream" speech, right? maybe there will be some mention of the complexity of the march on washington, the labor unions and the labor activists who actually made it possible, who actually did all the organizing like bay yard rustin. maybe we'll hear about the full name of the march on washington which was the march on washington for jobs and freedom, and maybe we'll even hear about the kennedy administration's horror about this march. they didn't want this to happen. they were concerned that it would just lead to violence to the point where president kennedy shut down the federal government other than for essential personnel the day that this occurred in '63. but i'm pretty certain that the commemoration's mostly going to focus on dr. king and "i have a dream." we all know the speech, i'
in south america. but at the end of 1813, he was known really around the world. and washington, john quincy adams and james monroe agonized whether their nation, not principles of liberty and freedom should support the struggle for independence. in london, hard-bitten veterans of england's war against napoleon, mostly irish side not to fight for bolivar costs. lord byron made his boat and dream goes into with his daughter. but there would be five more years of bloodshed before his famous thrust from latin american shores. i'm sorry, 14 more years. i'm just reading the middle of it, so the fighters is wrong. there were 14 years of war have a great bloodshed before spain was thrust from latin american shores. at the end of the savage war, one man would be credited for single-handedly conceding, organizing and leading liberation of six nation subpopulation 1.5 times the size of north america, a landmass and the odds against what she thought of fermentable establish rural power, that wilderness, the splintered loyalties of many races would have proved daunting for the a-list of general santos c

responsible blueprint for middle-class jobs and growth. washington has argumen raged. my budget puts that argument to rest. we do not have to choose between goals, we can do both. when we saw in the 1990s, nothing reduces the deficit faster than growing the economy. my budget will reduce the deficit not what spending cuts that hurt students and seniors and middle-class families, but a bounce approach of the american people prefer and an investment -- but a balanced approach to american people prefer and in investment. i have signed $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction into law. my budget will reduce our deficit by nearly $2 trillion more without harming the recovery. that surpasses the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that many believe will stabilize our finance. we'll make the tough reforms required to strengthen medicare for the future without undermining the rocksolid guarantee at its core. we will enact commonsense tax reform that includes hosting loopholes.x loopholes like the ones that allow a billionaire to pay a lower tax rate than his or her secretary. this is the comp
